1995 BMW R100R Mystic

In Germany, Standard by AbhiLeave a Comment

Available only in 1994 and 1995 in the US, the Mystic was a factory custom based on the BMW R100R. The changes were entirely cosmetic, but they were not insignificant. Nowadays a ‘special edition’ just means new paint, but the Mystic actually had several restyled parts. Some people don’t get what the big fuss is about this bike, and I understand the sentiment, but it’s become a cult bike and prices seem to be rapidly rising.

According to The BMW Boxer Twins Bible by Ian Falloon, changes for the Mystic included the red paint scheme, black frame, lower handlebars, restyled sidecovers/seat/tail section, shorter license plate bracket, a different angle for the muffler, and some chrome-plated pieces.

This example has less than 28,000 miles and it’s claimed to look and run like it just came off the showroom floor. According to the seller, ‘every part is new or refurbished except for the drivetrain’, and it comes with the original panniers and transmission circlip mod. The original seat is included but a custom seat by Don Weber is on the bike right now. I’d ditch the National Cycle fairing and put the original seat back on but this bike looks incredibly clean.
